ABSTRACT
The article highlights two letters, one from a fishing family and another from a senior fisheries management officer, which show the problem within the management of the Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA). It relates the case of Belinda and John Malin whose boat, the Demi Maddison, will lay idle for 80 percent of the time under the new management plan implemented by AFMA. In response, the AFMA says the current hook management system is an interim management system prior to the introduction of an individual transferable quota (ITQ) system.
